Hand picked fruit from our vineyard on the Beamsville Bench from a plot of vines planted in 2009 were gently pressed. Free run juice was run to barrel where it slowly fermented over the course of several weeks without any additions. After fermentation the wines remained on their lees with little stirring of the lees.
The final barrel selection was made after aging for seven months in barrel, all French oak with just 12% of the barrels being new oak. Racked, filtered and bottled in the summer of 2018.
